Set in Yonkers in 1942, Bella is 35 years old, mentally challenged, and lives with her stern mother, Grandma Kurnitz. Ne’er-do-well son Eddie is financially strapped and taking to the road as a salesman. When he needs to leave his two young sons with them, the boys are left to contend with Grandma. They soon discover Bella has a secret romance. To top it off, Uncle Louie, a small-time hoodlum, appears with a mysterious package and needs a place to hide out!
